Are Millennials Discovering New Genders, or Just Trying to Get Attention?

George Fields has taken a look at the ever-growing pornocopeia of trendy sexual identities and finds the whole thing shallow and pedantic.

Having recently entered a public high school, (my sister) has come to enjoy informing me about some of her more eccentric peers. Near the end of the school year, she told me fewer and fewer of her friends were merely normal boys who liked normal girls, or normal girls who liked normal boys. Rather, they identify as a slew of peculiarly novel “sexual orientations.”

Some were, of course, the usual “gay” or “lesbian,” but in addition to these were “demisexuals,” “androsexuals,” and “therians” (which, she explained, are people who are only attracted to individuals who commune with the same spirit animal). One identified as a “panromantic polyamorous asexual non-binary space god.”

Are these actual “genders” (a word that has been maliciously maimed of its original meaning) or just young, insecure and rather boring people trying desperately to make themselves seem interesting; like the middle-aged women you see at the supermarket with tramp stamps and oddly-colored hair.

Instead of making up new sexualities to show how very, very clever, tolerant and shallow we are, perhaps there is more richness to be gained in appreciating the innate and natural sexuality of men and women as it has evolved over thousands of years.

For myself, I happen to think real, masculine “cisgendered” men are pretty awesome on their own; I’ve always found athletes, soldiers and hunters far more interesting than drag queens or pajama boys.

 

Ban All The Things!

There is a danger in making concessions to insane radicals.

The idea of banning the Confederate flag in response to a shooting that had absolutely nothing to do with the Confederate Flag began with dim, soft-bellied Republican politicians like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush who thought consigning the Confederate Battle Emblem to museums would be a nice, feelgood concession to the left which would heal wounds and bring us all together.  Others said, “This isn’t about banning the flag, it’s about taking it off Government buildings and you’re silly (and racist) to think it will go any further than that.”  Others said, “I’m not a southerner, so I don’t care about that flag. Let’s just concede the argument so we can put this all behind us and move on.”

It didn’t quite work out that way. Instead, companies like WalMart, eBay, and Amazon upped the ante by banning sales of Confederate Battle Emblems entirely; the National Park Service joined in, too.  Apple has reportedly removed Civil War Games from their app store because they use the CBE.

So much for those who insisted this wasn’t really a ban.

Sensing weakness, the crazies of the left immediately pounced and began demanding more concessions; and nothing short of an ISIS-style erasure of American cultural history and icons will satisfy them now.

In dealing with the left, one must remember that they are a selfish and irrational people. Political Correctness is the outward expression of their piety in their progressive socialist religion. They demonstrate their moral purity to one another through one-upmanship, no demand is so crazy that it cannot be topped be an even crazier demand. It’s a game no one can ever win.

Put another way, if you give a monster a cookie, he’s only going to demand more cookies.

The Left’s Obsession with Symbols and Magic

Posted by V the K at 7:34 am - June 23, 2015.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends

The silly and idiotic bureaucrats at the World Health Organization have undertaken a project to change the names of all diseases to make them politically correct; the previous names were hurting the feelings of people… and pigs, apparently.

Meanwhile, in America, the left rallies around banning the Confederate battle emblem, which is apparently a magical totem with the power to deprive an entire race of people of the ability to achieve and self-actualize.

The left is culture obsessed with symbols.

As much the left wants to blame the killings in Charleston or the failures of large portions of the black race on the “stars and bars,” the flag had nothing to with these problems any more than its presence on the roof of the General Lee enabled it to sail through open boxcars on moving trains and emerge unscathed on the other side.

There is nothing evil or magical about the Confederate battle emblem. To believe so is childish.

Anger about the flag allows a large group of utterly useless people to rally around a cause and get a temporary ego fix because they are “change agents(TM)” or that they are somehow going to “change the world” by protesting against a piece of cloth. (Yeah, it’s funny how the American flag is “just a piece of cloth” when lefties want to burn or stomp on it, but the Confederate war emblem is “a totally important SYMBOL, you guys.”)

And if engage the rationalization that, “Well, it’s wrong to have the Confederate flag on a Government building, but no one is suggesting making it totally illegal,” you are a very naive individual indeed. The sitgmatization effort is already in full force. Try to hang one in a college dorm room and see what happens.

The problem isn’t so much with the immediate arguments, but with the implication.
Taking the flag down is conceding, “OK, you’ve got us. This is hate speech, so we’re taking it down.”

This 1.) Legitimizes the idea that hate speech can and should be censored and 2.) cedes to the left all the power in deciding what hate speech is.

It is not a good precedent.

In Closing, Caitlyn and Sideshow Flozell

If you had to pick a single person to epitomize Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the USA, you could not do better than Caitlyn Jenner, who once achieved feats that brought the admiration of the entire world, but has chosen to become an emasculated, celebrity-chasing joke.

But Rachel Dolezal (a.k.a ‘Sideshow Flozell’) comes a pretty damn close second.

11393158_10152935869756700_2077593722813386203_n

“I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon,” she told Matt Lauer.

Whether her race-fluidity is a cynical exploitation of an academic and political culture that favors dark skinned people, a reflection of deep mental illness, or just an extreme example of a white person appropriating what respected social anthropologist Cher called “black cool,” it is striking that her effforts to change her identity have been not as universally lauded by the social progressive left as Caitlyn Jenner’s. (Although some leftists are willing to support Dolezal’s delusion.)

The Mister says that gender reassignment should be thought of as a form of therapy. If so, it is the only form of therapy I know that involves validating a psychological delusion. Well, that and telling women who haven’t really been raped that it’s totally okay for them to believe they were raped and even seek retribution against the men who didn’t rape them but could have.

Once it’s been decided that some delusions should be indulged, where do you draw the line between what to indulge and what not to indulge? Is it as simple

One of the reasons transgenderism is impressed is because the progressive left is highly Freudian and will eagerly embrace anything that seems kinky and pushes the envelope of hedonistic self-indulgence; although very few progressive left men would hook-up with Caitlyn Jenner given the chance.

Transgenderism is also accepted simply because of technology; chemical and medical procredures exist that make it possible to mutilate the male form into a crude facsimile of the female form and vice versa. This creates something of a dilemma for progressive leftists who embrace gender fluidity but are uncomfortable with race fluidity since surgically altering features and chemically altering skin tone to more resemble those of another race are also possible. So, it is not merely a matter of “what science can do.”

Also, transgenderism is attractive because it subverts The Patriarchy. Allowing people to decide their own racial identity, on the other hand, undermines the leftist coalition. Nothing could quite smash the whole culture of affirmative action and race preferences like millions of “trans-racial” Caucasians suddenly coming out of the closet as black and demanding that their identity be respected and that they be given access to scholarships, educational opportunities, and jobs set aside for minorities.

Above all, the fixation on Caitlyn Jenner and Flozell of Spokane at a time when Chinese hackers are stealing state secrets with impunity; when the Chinese, Iranians, and Russians are laughing at our military; when our economy is being sustained only by massive Government borrowing (that can go on forever, right?) shows that, as a culture, we no longer care about Serious Things. We have lost sight of what matters, and instead are locked into a cycle of self-validation through self-gratification and fixation on frivolous identity culture.

The Tyranny of the Mentally Ill

Posted by V the K at 4:50 pm - June 6, 2015.

We live under the tyranny of mentally ill people.

No, I’m not talking about the delusional megalomaniacal narcissist who is our president, or the paranoid sociopath who is poised to succeed him. I speak of the manner in which our social policies and politics are being tailored to the whims of people who are mentally defective. I am referring to the way our academic institutions, our elected government officials, even our business enterprises are forced to cater to people who are mentally ill at the expense of the rational majority.

  • Example 1: A woman suffers the delusion that she has been raped after she is spurned by her former lover. She calls attention to herself by dragging a mattress around campus. [Later, she makes a sex video that she publishes on the internet but tells people that if they watch it, they’re raping her again.] She wins praise from the left-wing media, feminist groups and is invited to the State of the Union speech by a United States Senator. Colleges everywhere adopt policies that deprive sane men of Constitutional rights in order to appease hysterical women. [Hystrionic Personality Disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder]
  • Example 2: Feminists who lack the basic coping skills to manage a difference of opinion insist that they must be protected from exposure to any opinion they don’t agree with, less they feel unsafe. They insist on being provided with “safe spaces” where they can play with stuffed animals and Play-Doh. Institutions of higher education accommodate these demands. A leading feminist organization gives a lifetime achievement award to a puppet from a children’s show. [Hystrionic Personality Disorder, Immature Personality Disorder]
  • Example 3: Progressive leftists invent the concept of “microaggressions,” a construct that gives hypersensitive, narcissistic people an unlimited license to find offense in the ordinary behavior and language of normal, well-adjusted people. Universities and social groups respond by restricting the speech and behavior of well-adjusted people so that hypersensitive types don’t feel “unsafe.” [Avoidant Personality Disorder, Persecutory Delusion]
  • Example 4: A hysterical woman Mohammedan on a United Airlines flights throws a tantrum because a filthy infidel woman would not give her the full can of Diet Coke she demanded. The airline apologizes to her and fires the stewardess, because despite (or perhaps because of) her history of dramatic exaggeration and connections to dubious organizations, no one dares cross the deranged. [Hystrionic Personality Disorder, Persecutory Delusion]
  • Example 5: The progressive left celebrates violent thugs and denigrates those who protect innocent people from the predations of violent thugs. [Hybristophilia]. The thugs complain that they are being treated unfairly that the police are interfering with their predatory activities. [Antisocial Personality Disorder, Persecutory Delusion] Politicians of all stripes put restrictions on the police to appease the thugs.
  • Example 6: A state in a condition of extreme drought cannot build new water infrastructure and is forced to dump millions of gallons of precious freshwater into the ocean to satisfy a cult of radical environmentalists who oppose any human activity that is perceived to alter the natural environment in any way. [Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in the service of Gaia Worship]
  • Example 7: A man who had his features surgically altered to (sort of) resemble a woman proclaims himself “the new normal.” No, it’s not normal. It is something than can be tolerated or accepted, but it is not normal. [Body Dysmorphic Disorder] But we are ordered not only to pretend it is normal, but to celebrate his “courage.” And anyone who refuses to buy into the delusion that a person with a penis is a woman is equated to a Klansman or a Nazi.

Without winning an election, without ever putting their demands before the public, mentally ill people have come to run our society; dictating behavioral norms, censoring speech, and forcing politicians to adopt irrational policies lest they upset the fragile sensibilities of deeply unbalanced people. How long can a society survive when the inmates are literally running the asylum?

In Which I Disagree with the Proposition that Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Is a “Hero”

Posted by V the K at 11:11 am - June 3, 2015.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends

Leftists are proclaiming the pseudo-woman formerly known as Bruce a Jenner a “Hero.”

Seriously, WTF?

A hero is supposed to be someone who selflessly risks his own life or his own well-being in order to save another, or others. Secondarily, it can be a form of recognition for achieving some extraodinary feat in a field of noble endeavor.

Chris Kyle was a legit hero, he saved numerous lives and achieved extraordinary feats. Martin Luther King is a legit hero. Dakota Meyer is a legit hero.

All Jenner did was spend a sh’load of money to have his penis cut off and replaced with a pseudo-vagina.

In what possible, deranged, demented way could that be considered “heroic?”

There is some deep pathology at work in a culture where someone is declared a “hero” solely by dint of emasculating himself. It reflects, I think, on how the cultural left disdains all things masculine, and especially activities like sports and warfare. Jenner is a “hero” to them mainly for subverting and transgressing the things they don’t like. A prog-leftist is never going to achieve anything that requires real sacrifice. But if the definition of hero is dumbed down to “living your truth,” then, hell, any leftist SJW can achieve that without even getting off the couch.

UPDATE: According to the ACLU, this entire post is “Hate Speech.”

The Madness of Menz

Filed under: Ideas & Trends,Post 9-11 America

The cable series ‘Mad Men’ – which leftists love, apparently, because it’s some sort of bash on Republicans — finaled last night. But before it went, it inspired an article that probably raised some hackles. “New York Women Secretly Wish They Lived in the Mad Men Era.”

In synopsis, it’s because women really came out on the short side of the sexual revolution. Most women, deep down, want a man who is professionally successful and committed to a relationship. Because of the sexual revolution, men have easy access to sex and no longer have to commit to women to get it. And the rise of slacker culture means even men who live in their parents’ basement can still get sex, or get enough pr0n that sex is not a priority.

Here’s the bit that stuck out for me.

Says Ellie, 42, a student on Manhattan’s East Side who used to work in publishing, “Technology is supposed to bring people closer, but especially in the context of dating it pushes people further apart. It used to be a guy had to call and leave a message and you called him back and you made a date.”

Now, says Ellie, it’s just “texting that leads nowhere.”

Or… or… maybe men see getting involved with a 42 year old student as a thing that leads nowhere.

Ace makes the case for a velvet divorce of the United States along left-right lines. The progs can create their statist utopia, where in return for complete loyalty to the party, the party will promise you welfare, social justice, and equality. They can use the power of the State to punish every heteronormative microaggression trigger. The right can create a Constitutional Republic with freedom, debate, and opportunity.  Here’s a sample, read the whole thing.

Of course, we would have to overcome the insatiable craving of the Left to have power over others, first.

Men Need to Touch Boys More, says Out-of-Touch Lefty

Posted by V the K at 7:18 pm - March 25, 2015.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends

I don’t Mark Greene is, and the website where this story appears does not offer any biographical information. All I know about him is 1. He doesn’t think men touch boys or other men enough and 2. He blames No. 1 on “homophobic fanatics who police lesbians and gays in our society” (emphasis in original). So, I’m gonna venture a guess on where he comes from, socio-politically speaking.

In America in particular, if a young man attempts gentle platonic contact with another young man, he faces a very real risk of homophobic backlash either by that person or by those who witness the contact. This is, in part, because we frame all contact by men as being intentionally sexual until proven otherwise. Couple this with the homophobia that runs rampant in our culture, and you get a recipe for increased touch isolation that damages the lives of the vast majority of men.

Here’s where Mr. Green is out-of-touch: I actually see quite a lot of familiar, non-sexual touching going on between men; hugs, back slaps, hand shakes, arms-around-the-shoulder. I see it quite often, and in two venues in particular. 1. Sports, at all levels. 2. Church. I am guessing Mr. Greene would rank both sports and church among the worst places in America for the “rampant homophobia” he claims prevents dudes from engaging in “platonic touching.” Has it occurred to him that it’s people in his own Ivory Tower of Academia who are averse physical contact?

Also, I can’t help but notice that he uses antique photographs of men in physical contact with each other to illustrate his point that such things used to be okay before our culture became “rampantly homophobic.” Is he really claiming society was less homophobic a hundred years ago?

The Left and its Science Fetish

Posted by V the K at 7:14 am - February 12, 2015.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends

The adolescent mean girls of the Secular Left were squeeing yesterday because Republican Governor Scott Walker was asked a question about the theory of evolution and gave an answer, the short version of which is, “who cares?” which, in their eyes, marked him as a rube. In fairness, his answer could have been better. Any Republican asked this ‘gotcha’ question should simply respond, “That question is irrelevant. I am running to help the middle class who are being pounded by this president and his party, not to engage in Scientific or Theological debate.”

Science is a fetish to the left, and I use that term in the context of “an object regarded with awe as being the embodiment or habitation of a potent spirit or as having magical potency,” although, frankly, the other two definitions would also fit.

The Left does not revere actual scientists, they revere people like Bill Nye, Neil Degrasse Tyson, and Jim Parsons who play scientists on TV. Ask a typical secular leftist who won the Nobel Prize for Physics last year and they will have to make a dash for the Google Machine.

A typical leftist only really cares about evolution as a tribal marker, a way of determining whether someone is “of the body.” When a leftist asks someone their view on evolution, it is not to elicit a discussion of scientific theory, it’s the precise equivalent of a bitchy thirteen year old girl checking out another girl’s clothes to determine if she’s ‘cool’ or not.

The reason the left refuses to take Islamic Terrorism seriously is because the solution to it would require the use of robust military force; which the anti-military left cannot support. *

The reason the left is obsessed with Global Warming is because every “solution” to it would require a massive expansion of Government power and the destruction of the Global Free Enterprise System; which are the two things the Left absolutely supports above all other things.

Well, there’s this one:

The modern left’s ideology is one big Nationwide ad. Submit to our practices or your kids will die. Only our mandated health insurance will treat your Brain cancer or protect you from global warming.

And/or this one:

“What the Leftist does in debate is utter his idiot word fetishes and slogans with the sneering hauteur of a card player displaying his trump card, or a chessmaster a checkmate. And when his nonsense does not win the debate, or even address the debate, he realized you are the OTHER, and he blames you, and insults your character, your intelligence, your education, your moral stature, your maturity, et cetera”:

Take your pick.

BTW, a left-wing SJW has figured out why Seattle lost the Superbowl; it’s because of racism. I am not making this up.

Hipster Progressives and Their Loathing of Literacy and Ideas

A hipster doofus millennial offers a screed that denounces books as “classist” and “luxury items” and “decadent affectations of the running dog bourgeoisie.” (I may have made up that last part.)

The commenters at AoS HQ note that the same doofus denouncing books as bourgeois luxury items probably owns a $600 iPhone and pays $8 for an artisanal latter. Another recalls when Progressive Social Justice Warriors (then calling themselves “Communists”) took over Cambodia under Pol Pot and systematically butchered anyone deemed “intellectual.”

The left is definitely better off when voters are illiterate, disengaged, and only pay attention to social media. That way, they are much more likely to believe crap like Mitt Romney wants to outlaw tampons or Republicans want to kill gay people.

An Unusual, Yet Provocative, Perspective

A goofy-lookin’ British guy thinks trying to cure cancer is a waste of time, because as causes of deaths go, cancer is one of the better ones.

Death from cancer is the best … You can say goodbye, reflect on your life, leave last messages, perhaps visit special places for a last time, listen to favourite pieces of music, read loved poems, and prepare, according to your beliefs, to meet your maker or enjoy eternal oblivion.

This is, I recognise, a romantic view of dying, but it is achievable with love, morphine, and whisky.

Just putting this out there in hopes it will provoke lively debate and maybe some childish name-calling (because… internet).

A Parable in Red and Blue

Posted by V the K at 3:31 pm - December 16, 2014.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends

Inspired by the recent talk of Secession from the left, Kurt Schilcter at ‘The Federalist’ ponders the repercussions of a formal dissolution of the USA, with the Red States of the South and mountain west forming “The Republic of America” and the Blue States of the Northeast, the Pacific Coast, and the Rust Belt forming the “Democratic States of North America.”

Blue America … immediately set to drafting a new constitution. It featured 216 new affirmative rights, including “the right to a living wage,” “the right to abortion upon demand at government expense,” and “the right to define one’s own life experience in terms of race and gender.” Embarrassingly, the rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion did not make the leaked initial draft; they were hastily added, but there was no right to keep and bear arms. In fact, the first law the new People’s Assembly passed was to confiscate all privately-owned weapons. The second was to legalize all illegal aliens, and the third to triple welfare payments.

Red America reaffirmed the United States Constitution. Then the Congress began a review of all existing laws, statutes and regulations, repealing thousands of them. It also limited social spending dramatically, making known the expectation that able-bodied adults would support themselves and their families. The resulting non-military federal government in Red America was about one quarter the size of Blue America’s.

And, as Buzzfeed would put it, “You won’t believe what happens next.”

Some form of dissolution is inevitable; the end state of every empire in human history has been dissolution. Our current fiscal trajectory is unsustainable and there is no political will to correct it. I don’t think the end result will be what Schlicter suggests; but I am okay with the idea of dissolution. Let’s be honest, talk of “unity” and “all people united together” is dictator-talk. I have no affection for any particular landmass or jurisdiction; I care about liberty. Would I rather live in a “united” America, geographically intact, but under a repressive totalitarian regime? Or would I rather see the USA split into 2-5 countries, where liberty might survive in 1 or 2 of them. Easy choice.
